Spring Cleaning Sale!!

Word is out that everyone is spring cleaning and we are DEEP cleaning out our theme tubs!! We are moving schools next year as our district is making the move to have all of our elementary buildings K-5.  We “get” to move to what we call “Disney Land” school. It’s the brand new school in our district. The school is very nice, but we have a huge load to move! Both of us have student teachers right now, so we are trying to clean and organize for our move. The weather in Kansas still isn’t very spring like, but we will celebrate with a little sale to finish up March!

Happy Spring!

This week we kicked off another year of Gumball Math with our kiddos and boy are they excited!!  We also made a few changes to our popular unit to meet the CC Math Standards.  If you have already purchased the unit head over to our TpT store and download the revised copy.

Revisions Include:  Test #9 (addition facts to 20), Test #10 (subtraction facts from 20)

Additional Tests Added:  Test #11 (mixed review to 10), Test #12 (mixed review to 20)

We also made large color coded gumballs that can be displayed on your bulletin board for each test that correspond with the small colored cut and paste gumballs that are included in the unit.
